SOLVED: Volunteer ID?

Salinas, CA(Zone 9b)

This is a volunteer that showed up in a bed in my front yard. It has an interesting cup-shaped double flower; the outer cup opens first leaving the inner cup folded up inside; in about a week the inner cup opens (you can see the inner cup beginning to open in the second flower in the picture). The lighter-colored leaves behind the flower are the ones that belong to its plant. Any help in identifying my mystery volunteer would be appreciated.

Campanula Canterbury bells

Salinas, CA(Zone 9b)

Thanks, China. I thought it looked like Canterbury Bells, but none of the pictures I saw of that showed a double bloom. Now I see that this is the "Cups and Saucers" variety. Cool!

Well, not really the cup-and-saucer form (Campanula medium 'Calycanthema') where there is a flat coloured bract under the flower, as an actual double form of Campanula medium... which I have had turn up spontaneously, as well.
